The UK Government Innovator Visa is an ideal route for Foreign Entrepreneurs who wish to Invest into a UK Start-up Business (In some cases they can start their own business). It will lead to settlement in the UK for an Investor and Immediate Family and eventually to British Citizenship.
An Innovator Visa Investment is aimed at Pre Trade Start-up Businesses or New Spin Offs from an Established Business, who can show an aptitude for High Growth and Innovation. The Investment is ideal for Companies who can show Innovation, Sustainability and are able to demonstrate the Viability of the Business.
Three years from the date of Investment, the Company must achieve two out of the seven criteria set by the Home Office. These are based on:
1. Business Growth
2. Job Creation
3. Specialist Job Creation
4. Increase in Customer Numbers
5. Research & Development Activity
6. Increase in Exports
